With a strong story, family entertainment narrative and extended weekend at the disposal, Badhaai Ho has availed the benefit to its maximum potential. Audience loved the movie and it is pretty evident in its collections as it has now crossed the 45 crore mark in the opening weekend itself.
Badhaai Ho took a strong start on Thursday and collected 7.29 crore. It saw a big jump on Friday, minting 11.67 crore, which was also a partial holiday. Saturday, it again witnessed a double digit earning and it brought 12.50 crore. So, it was expected that it is going to bring another impressive number on Sunday and it did. This Ayushmann Khurrana starrer minted 13.50 crore on 4th day.
Badhaai Ho’s total is now 45.06 crore. This is simply outstanding for a movie that is mid sized and dominated the box office only on the positive recommendation. It will now cross the 50 crore mark easily. Weekdays also won’t be a problem as audience is there for its shows and there is no competition for it.
There is a chance that Badhaai Ho can enter the 100 crore club if its keeps earning like this. Its 2nd weekend collections will give a clear idea and how Baazaar, the next week release fares. Ayushmann Khurrana recently gave his 1st 50 crore film with AndhaDhun and if Badhaai Ho enters the 100 crore club, it will be a great year for the hardworking actor.
It’s always great to see films like these doing well at the box office. Audience’s taste has changed for good and we hope, more and more films with content do good in future, too. Badhaai Ho also stars Sanya Malhotra, Neena Gupta and Gajraj Rao and it is directed by Amit Sharma.
